* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Much of the calamity that happens to Haddock happened to Creator/{{Herge}} too. One of his stairs was broken and the repair man always promised he would come by, but it just never happened. Herge was so irritated by this that he wrote the situation in the story, even gave the repair man the same name: ''Boullu''. The incident with the drunk fanfare band also happened to him in real life.
